Good quality cashmere scarves for fall/winter?

In the spring/early fall love quotes scarves work well, but as the weather gets colder the LQs just aren't cutting it. I'm looking for good quality scarves for fall/winter use. I want them to last for more than one season obviously, and would prefer solid colors, although prints are okay as well. Where should I look? best to get blends (like silk/cashmere?) or pure cashmere? I'd prefer something that does wrap around your neck like the love quotes, more fluffy than falling flat and limp . . if that makes sense? A lot of the pashmina's i'm seeing in stores just look blah to me and are not wide enough.

Perhaps something like this?

Hi Elly!
I think you should look into both Autumn Cashmere and Kinross. I work in a boutique that sells both these brands and the scarves and soft and warm! I've actually worn a couple around the store on days when the air conditioning was too chilly for me. They're great, they come in every basic color, and they are very high quality. My boss likes to refer to them as the adult version of a security blanket because they are great for every situation.
Good luck!

Hi, may I suggest you look at handwoven scarves by scarfguy in Ohio (he ships to the US and Canada) and by skiingweaver in Massachusetts?

Wow! Those scarfguy ones are gorgeous!

I've had a Burberry 100% cashmere scarf since February 2005. It's held up well over the years. The weave isn't thick, though. It has kept me warm through San Francisco and East Coast winters. It drapes very well and is wide enough to use as a stole. I'm not sure if their scarves have changed in the years since I've bought it, though.
